Robbery foiled

A machete-wielding man was foiled Saturday night in an attempt to hold up the Maedac House building in Red Bay, George Town.  

The man apparently tried to enter the store carrying a machete and a white bag, but found himself locked out by security doors.  

He ran to the rear of the building after he failed to enter. No arrests were immediately reported.  

The man was described as being between 5 feet, six inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a light brown complexion, wearing a black mask, hoodie, dark glasses and dark pants.
